Comment:
I started taking Sprintec about 9 months after starting on birth control pills. Before, I would get my period for at least two weeks, but that stopped happening when I started taking this. I don't remember any nausea (unless I forget to take a pill and have to take two in one day), even when first starting the pill; I haven't gained more than 5 pounds (but then again I'm in college, so ...

Comment:
I have been taking Sprintec for about 4 years now. It works very well for birth control and I have noticed my periods are like clockwork, very regular. I have gained some weight and have noticed a rash on my face . My doctor says the rash is caused by the estrogen in the pill.

I have no problem taking the pill everyday but sprintec totally has given me pimples and very oily face. The second week I've notice on my face. And breast becomes very tender, made me think something else was wrong. I may go back to OrthoTry-Cyclen Lo.

Comment:
I have been taking this for 2 years (on and off due to moving and switching pharmacies a lot), and I love it other than it sometimes gives me a pimple or two and I have recently been getting cramps from it. I recommend this to anyone for a good use of period regulation and birth control.

Comment:
I took this pill for 7 months. I didn't get pregnant, so I suppose it works in that area. My period never came during my placebo pills. It was usually late. It was not lighter than before either. I had been on Loestrin 24 before and this in no way acts in a similar way. Biggest issue: I developed an array of breast cysts due to this medication. My boobs were always tender. Around month 4, ...
